Deutsche Bank Downgrades Genco Shipping & Trading (GNK) To 'Sell'

 October 19, 2012 03:12 PM
 


(By Balachander) Deutsche Bank analyst Justin Yagerman downgraded his rating on shares of Genco Shipping & Trading Ltd. (NYSE: GNK) to "Sell" from "Hold".

Yagerman wrote that shares have rallied 16.7 percent since Q2 (vs. the S&P 500's 7.0 percent gain) and asset values have declined.

However, the analyst said his current NAV estimate is negative $6/share, down from negative $5/share in August.

"While GNK has ample liquidity to weather a weak 2013, loan repayment waivers expire in 2014 and unless the market materially recovers, liquidity risk will once again return," Yagerman wrote in a note.

Yagerman, who has a price target of $2 on the stock, expects the current support for GNK's share price to dissipate moving through Q4 and rates once again decline into 2013.

Excluding Baltic Trading's vessels, Genco owns a fleet of 53 drybulk vessels, consisting of nine Capesize, eight Panamax, 17 Supramax, six Handymax and 13 Handysize vessels.
